Pie Bloopers

The Pies that Didn't Make It

When I started PieChef.com, one thing I didn’t consider was the amount of experimentation I would end up doing to develop new recipes.

As with any research project, not every experiment is a success. 

At least with pies, the failures are edible (sometimes).

Chocolate Cherry Pie Disaster!
Uh-oh...Are we really gonna eat that?

My first attempt at a chocolate cherry pie produced something that my family nicknamed “Pie of Darkness” and “George’s Chocolate Cherry Mess.” 

They did, however, eat every bite….

Cranberry Caper

I wanted to make a cranberry pie for the December Pie of the Month, and I thought cranberry custard pie would be good and a bit unusual…

It was, but not the way I imagined!
